We Are Learning...
Reading & Writing
During our language time, we worked this week on adjectives. We learn that adjectives are words that describe nouns. We practiced identifying them and adding them to our writing. On Tuesday of this week we read the book My Dog is as Smelly as Dirty Socks by Hanoch Piven. It is a book full of adjectives and analogies. After reading it, it inspired the class to make a page for a class book about themselves. They had to write four analogies about themselves and then find pictures of those items they used to create a self portrait. Check out some of the finished ones below!
Side note: Math journals should have come home today. Many students are completely full and others are very close. Most students had another one from the beginning of the year. We will begin using our new math journals when we return in January!
